Securing & Protecting Your IT Infrastructure and Business



Proliferating mobility, cloud technologies, and data analytics are changing the way businesses operate. With more information flowing than ever before, small and midsize businesses (SMBs) must be able to take advantage of these trends with an IT infrastructure that is scalable, agile, easy-to-manage. Yet the cost and complexity keeps teams focused on day-to-day maintenance activities instead of innovation and improvement. For businesses to be successful in speeding time to value, they need to invest in a Hybrid IT infrastructure to deliver the right mix of infrastructure and services that can develop and deploy applications on a continuous basis, draw insights, and make decisions from data.

 Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) ProLiant servers are designed to simplify Hybrid IT by providing the agility of a modernized infrastructure, the security to protect digital assets, and the affordability to pay only for what is used. SMBs especially need to invest in a Hybrid IT platform. The ProLiant DL380 Gen10 Server, which was created specifically for SMBs so it can grow as they grow.



As SMBs focus on growth and profitability, they must consider IT options that will give them maximum performance. Public cloud options may seem promising because they offer greater scalability and agility than traditional IT, but going all-in on cloud isn’t possible for business-critical workloads where performance, protection, privacy, and control are paramount. Hybrid IT with hyperconverged systems is the solution. HPE Hyper Converged solutions empower IT by providing a simple, efficient, software-defined platform that combines everything below the hypervisor and provides the agility and economics of cloud with the enterprise capabilities of on-prem infrastructure. The hyperconverged system with the most complete industry guarantee is HPE SimpliVity 380, a building block that works with ProLiant DL380 Gen10 server to allow IT leaders to achieve the agility and economics of the cloud with enterprise-grade performance and protection. SimpliVity 380 is a pre-integrated, hyperconverged infrastructure that dramatically simplifies IT by combining the ProLiant server with all infrastructure and advanced data services for virtualized workloads—including guaranteed data efficiency, data protection, and VM-centric management and mobility.


HPE ProLiant Gen10 comes equipped with security protection built in across the server life-cycle, with firmware anchored directly into the silicon. Businesses who use HPE ProLiant Gen10 will benefit from the following protection services:

  • Silicon Root of Trust. Silicon Root of Trust is a link between custom HPE silicon and integrated firmware designed to prevent compromised firmware from executing code. Essentially, each server has a fingerprint that will prevent a server from booting up unless there's a match.
  • Code detection. Run-time Firmware Verification detects compromised code or malware, and Secure Recovery recovers firmware to the last known good state or factory settings.
  • Enhanced security, anywhere. The newest Integrated Lights Out server management, iLO 5 Advanced Premium Security Edition, enables premium security features like Automatic Secure Recovery, Runtime Firmware Validation, Secure Erase of NAND Data, and CNSA mode.

Having infrastructure with built-in protection against acts that disrupt business or compromise sensitive data will give businesses the peace of mind they need to operate with ease and confidence.
